Aim and Objective: to compare and describe the foot pressure spots between diabetics and healthy individuals using foot imprinter (semiquantitative foot imprint mat). Materials and Methods: control group composed 25 healthy individuals, test group 25 diabetic individual. Result: (+)-areas of high pressure, (-)-areas of moderate pressure, (?)-areas that indicate mild or poor pressure. Test group showed highly significant ARCH(?) when compared to control groups.
